Two men were arrested by Pittsburgh Police after a chase ended in a crash downtown Wednesday evening.
Public Safety spokeswoman Cara Cruz reported plainclothes detectives saw a man wanted on a federal drug warrant in the parking lot of a gas station at Beechwood Boulevard and Browns Hill Road shortly before 5 p.m.
Another man got out of a vehicle and got into one with the warrant suspect.
Cruz said the men fled as detectives began approaching them, with the suspects taking off onto the Parkway, nearly hitting one of the detectives.
A chase ensued. The suspects’ vehicle struck at least two and possibly three vehicles before exiting the Parkway and crashing at Fort Pitt Boulevard and Stanwix Street Downtown, Cruz said.
No injuries were reported.
The men were identified as James Montgomery and Darryl Lewis, both of Hazelwood.
